BMT introduces collision simulation service

BMT collision simulator BMT collision simulator BMT

BMT today announced the launch of a new service that will create simulations of marine collisions in an effort to identify failings and improve safety.

Using shipboard Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) data, radar images and regional AIS information, BMT will use its REMBRANDT simulation tool to reconstruct specific incidents where collisions have occurred.

Voice, radar and position data sets will be automatically synchronised, together with environmental data and navigational circumstances.

BMT’s newly-formed Collison Reconstruction and Simulation Team, made up of master mariners, chief engineers, navigation and hydrodynamic modellers and weather experts, will use this data to create a full simulation of the incident.

The subsequent report and 3D visualisations produced by BMT can then be used for litigation purposes, as well as for training requirements and the development of safety protocols.
